The White House showed off its sense of humor on April Fools’ Day by playing a joke on the unsuspecting public.

The official White House Twitter page told followers to stay tuned for a “special video message from the President,” but when the video was finally released, viewers were surprised to see Youtube’s “Kid President,” Robby Novak, take center stage in the White House press briefing room.

“It looks like you were expecting somebody else,” Novak joked. “April Fools on all of you all.”
